Introduction:

Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), joined Dr. Tom Inglesby, Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, at a November 5 congressional seminar at the Dirksen Senate Office Building to discuss the latest events in the ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Dr. Redfield commented on the serious challenges involved and the possible trajectory of the outbreak, how CDC and the US government are involved, and what is needed to control spread of the disease. The goal of this seminar was to provide the Hill community and other stakeholders with the most current information on this outbreak and how the United States is participating in the international response.
